I've got a thing for chickens.....just check out my blog entries all this past week.....

Now the sign, I would love to have that !!!!! Do you suppose they'd miss it??

EWWWWWWW, love these photos......

I seriously love chickens, not in the cute kind of way. I painted one and called it "a dude with a tude", see the right sidebar on my blog......

The colors you capture in your photos really draw me into the scene and take me away to dreamland, right here in New Mexico at my desk......*sigh*

Thanks for the treat !!!!!!

I like the walking chicken! We get our eggs from a farm where the chickens walk about. Handpainted signs are charming as well, though there was that one with a rabbit on it, not showing that one to the rabbits.

I've always wanted to have chickens! Queenie is getting two hens and I am feeling inspired. Maybe the Manor could use a few?

Yes, everyone who has a little bit of land should get chickens.
They are very 'decoratif' and have strong personalities.
You would even get eggs - maybe......
and you could take pictures of them.
